Strange enough.

What's wrong with

  find -type d -name .svn rm -rf {} \;


It is certainly a 'less manual process' than typing in a whole mail ;-}

Something like

  for i in `svn log foo.sql | grep '^r' | cut -d ' ' -f 1` ; do
    svn cat -$i > foo.sql.$i

should do the trick. [This is untested, so try out in a quite corner...]

There is no such problem as far as I can tell.
